Join a team of more than 200 employees in New York City who are working to make a difference in people’s lives and transform communities.
Our work is grounded in our core values of faith, integrity, inclusiveness, compassion, social justice, and stewardship.

The Program Assistant provides administrative and programming support to the Mission Real Estate Capacity team. Trinity promotes “mission through marketplace,” the concept that effective, long-term mission can be developed, sustained and expanded using the tools of the marketplace. Trinity seeks to leverage its own history and expertise in realizing sustainable income through real estate assets in order to assist other churches to build a solid financial footing to fund their work. Trinity has an existing grant program to support Anglican churches in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean in building financial capacity. This program helps Trinity’s partners identify and design income-generating projects that can provide ongoing financial support for mission work and will be self-sustaining.
